Let The Battle Of The Food Truck All-Stars Begin!

1483721641597While the overwhelmingly popular Downtown Huntsville Street Food Gathering brand has been retired for 2017, Downtown Huntsville is excited to welcome a new and exciting food-centric event in its place: The Battle of the Food Truck All-Stars!

Curious how it will work?  Here’s what we know:

In just a few days, on February 9th at 6pm, the owners of 23 food trucks will gather at Yellowhammer Brewing and have 5 minutes each to present on their menu, branding, customer service and design to a panel of expert judges.

Judges for the event will include: Chefs Leonardo Maurelli III (Executive Chef of the Hotel at Auburn University) and James Boyce (Boyce Restaurant Concepts) and marketing gurus Trent Willis (Founder & CEO of Red Brick Strategies) and Lisa van der Reijden (Principal, VDR Designs).

After deliberating, the judges will select 10 food trucks to move on to the final round, and then YOU THE PEOPLE will vote for 2 more via an online poll that will open in February!

The final 12 Food Truck All-Stars will then compete twice a month from May – October at various times and locations around Downtown Huntsville to see who will be named Champion!

Here’s the current list of food trucks that will be competing for one of the final 12 spots:

Pop-Up Parks Return to Downtown Huntsville This Fall

Photo Oct 15, 11 49 45 PM

Crunkleton is excited to announce that Pop-Up Parks will be returning to Downtown Huntsville this October for their third annual event!

This year we are looking forward to some new and exciting Pop-Up Park participants, as well as some returning favorites!

If you’re new to the concept and are wondering what a “Pop-Up Park” even is, here’s a quick run down for you:

In 2013 Downtown Huntsville Inc invited local companies from all over Huntsville to participate in the unique challenge of creating a miniature park! Here’s the catch though; it had to fit in a standard parallel parking spot, other that that, all was far in love and Pop-Up Parks.

Year one was such a success that it has since turned into a full-fledged annual event in Downtown Huntsville!

Photo Oct 15, 11 51 39 PMIn the past, entries have included everything from a life-size helicopter cockpit complete with sound effects, to old school desks re-purposed as cornhole targets, to a glow-in-the-dark checkerboard to a life-sized foosball game.

It’s fun, interactive and best of all it’s FREE!

The date set for this year’s event is October 16th – October 25th, so make sure to mark your calendar and come downtown to experience this one of a kind annual community event.

We couldn’t be more excited to be back again as sponsors!

If you’re interested in a bit more of the history behind this concept, make sure to head over to parkingday.org.

Stay tuned here, and at Downtown Huntsville Inc for more forthcoming details.
